For this site’s first review I wanted to choose something that’s contemporary and feminine because that’s how I want The Perfume Blogger to be. So, I trawled the perfume counters of Debenhams yesterday and I opted for Daisy Dream Kiss by Marc Jacobs.
The nose behind this is Amandine Clerc-Marie, who previously created David Beckham Classic Summer and Chloe Lisy amongst others. It has evolved from their popular Daisy range, the original of which was released in 2007 and was followed by Daisy Eau So Fresh in 2011 and Daisy Dream in 2014.
There are three different bottles for this fragrance. They’re all a sweet shade of hot pink and feature the signature daisies that have become instantly recognisable.
The fragrance is described as a floral-fruit-musky scent but the fruits fade out quickly leaving a potent mixture of freesia and jasmine, turning what could have been a sickly sweet teenage perfume into something that is actually sophisticated and appropriate for all ages. The musk is powerful and draws down the heart notes nicely to give better silage and the cedar and ambroxan are barely noticed.
The verdict is that this fragrance is a good investment but as always, don’t purchase it based on the top notes. They faded very quickly. If, however, white freesia and jasmine are your thing, this could be right for you.
Blackcurrant, grapefruit, pineapple
Rhubarb, white freesia, jasmine
Ambroxan, cedar, musk
This fragrance is available in 50ml bottles at the RRP of £55.00. You can check it out on Amazon for a slightly cheaper price of £42.71. (Price correct at time of publishing)
